Detective Pikachu lands on the Nintendo eShop and at retail in March

Detective Pikachu is the newest confirmed Nintendo amiibo in months

There was also a 40,000-strong petition to get Danny DeVito to do the voiceover for the English version of the game but, as you can hear in the trailer below, he said no.

The move marks another step in the recent resurgence of Pokemon that began with Pokemon Go's release in 2016.

It's official, the gruff, coffee-chugging Detective Pikachu is coming to Nintendo 3DS in a full mystery outing globally on March 23. The two team up and start solving mysteries together using reasoning and logic, while looking for Tim's missing father, Harry Goodman. An easy mode will be available to guide players through the game, and Nintendo will also release an Amiibo toys-to-life figure that unlocks additional video clips and hints.

There's been a lot of buzz surrounding the upcoming Detective Pikachu movie, but today we're learning that those of us in the west will soon have a video game to go along with it. Nintendo revealed today that Detective Pikachu will soon make his way to the United States in a new video game for the 3DS.

Reynolds will not be part of the game, however.

Kylie Jenner has baby-proofed house
Shortly after Kylie's post onSnapchat a clip for an upcoming Keeping up With the Kardashians ( KUWTK ) aired. The only times that Kylie has shared a photo of herself on Instagram it was from the chest up.

However, the announcement of Detective Pikachu for the west means more goodies.

The amiibo itself looks really cool, featuring Pikachu in his new detective's hat and a unique base that looks like a map of the city. Are you excited to play Detective Pikachu this March?

Detective Pikachu is a follow-up of the Japanese-exclusive Detective Pikachu - Birth of a New Duo.

As seen in the artwork below, the Nintendo 2DS XL Pikachu Edition is aimed directly at Pokemon fans, as the adorable Electric-type's face on the hardware will no doubt cause a spark of joy to be felt in their hearts.
